I dislike fashion trends. I really, really do.
Now to be clear, it’s not the fashion trends itself I don’t like. No, I like seeing what’s trending on instagram and in the malls. I’m excited to see what’s in the stores for the next season. I myself end up wearing what’s in season.
Mixed message huh?
Here’s my problem with trends: it’s the concept that you HAVE to wear what’s trending, and if you don’t you’re not deemed “fashionable” or “in style.” My blood boils when I see other fashionistas and style bloggers tell their readers what they can and cannot wear, or how to not dress or style something.
I’m a free spirit (with anxiety lol!) and I believe in expressing myself through fashion. I believe in people expressing themselves whether it’s through paint, music, dance, or fashion.
I believe fashion itself is an art, and how sad would it be to restrict that art just because a few people say otherwise. It’s ridiculous! I believe in giving tips on how to dress a certain piece or how to style an intricate outfit, but I refuse to tell you what you should or shouldn’t wear.
The reason why I love fashion so much is because it gives me the freedom to be my truest self. I’ll be damned if I let someone else tell me otherwise!
